A mountain top Sunrise - For Francis

While in France we met some very nice people, Francis amongst them. On the Camel Trophy Owners Club (CTOC) website he's just asked where my nice sunrise photographs are. We were both wandering around at some unearthly hour of the morning sipping coffee and taking snaps. Well, I haven't sorted them yet, but I do have this little experiment in time lapse video. It's my first time at uploading video so I hope it works.

It's supposed to be in widescreen but the Blogger software has compressed it and reduced it's size, and in doing so it's not doing it justice.

Needless to say this will form part of a much longer video in the future, but I'm saving that as my Winter Project. As for now, I really must go and pack.

And the beat goes on...

Off on another little jolly tomorrow, this time with my mate Northern Terry. France, Spain, possibly Italy, who knows?

It just occurred to me however that the last time Terry and I went on a little jolly in a Land Rover something unpleasant happened...

Nothing like that is going to happen this time, nothing like that is going to happen this time, nothing like that... my mantra for the day has been set.

Shooting chickens and other animals, from the hip

OK, this is as far as I've got with the editing - and we're only in Fez (on the way down as it were), and it's here things took a dramatic change... but you'll just have to wait I'm afraid.
Please feel free to add comments, even if it's only "Nigel! Take that dreadful picture of me out of the public domain". At least I'll know someone's looking.

I would just like to add a big thank you to all that have let me point a lens in their general direction, again and again. For putting up with me being intrusive in all sorts of circumstances, and for not once complaining, well actually Karen B ..., thank you. I just hope the photo's have done your adventures some justice.
